Metod Pevec / Slovenia / 2015 / 82 min / Bosnian, Slovene

The five-storied block of flats, built as a hall of residence for construction workers, is today inhabited by men who came from Bosnia as young adults, worked in Slovenia for thirty years as construction workers and were left stranded after the construction companies had gone bankrupt. Young people from dysfunctional families have occupied the first floor, which also houses dislodged people searching for the cheapest lodgings they can find. Most of them have only a bed; nobody calls this place their home. Apart from being socially marginalised, the dwellers have another thing in common: stories. 

Metod Pevec moved into a former workers’ residence and shot the documentary about its current occupants single-handedly, without the aid of a film crew.

“All the press was ever interested in was simply a phenomenon. Say, the exploitation of workers. Their stories were written beforehand. The protagonists of media stories tend to be villains, in our case tycoon directors, the workers were cast in minor or even illustrative roles. My aim was the polar opposite. I was interested in people, the inhabitants of this residence, their feelings, their disillusionment, their proletarian failure, in a word, the human dimension.” (Metod Pevec)
